Keeper league advice on how to manage trades for draft picks

Postby tailgate13 » Mon May 17, 2010 12:19 am

I am participating in a keeper league with the following set up. (See below) Currently at the conclusion of the season each team keeps 4 players. There are no
limitations on how long you can keep someone and every team has to keep 4 players. Draft is adjusted to how teams finish, so last place team picks 1st, ect.

An idea has been presented to the league to allow future draft picks to be traded for roster players or in addition to make a deal more attractive.

The question is how to manage the draft once the deals have been brokered. The league is run on Yahoo so it appears the only way to manage this is to
have the team that traded the draft pick continue to make the pick on behalf of the team that it was traded to, then drop the player after the draft, and have
the new team pick the player up.

It seems like there must be an easier or more organized way of doing this? (at the same time not make the commish put in overtime trying to track all these transactions)

All suggestions would be appreciated. Thx

Yahoo lets you set the draft picks. Since Yahoo won't let one team have 27 players and another have 24 if a draft is 24 rounds, here is how you do it.

You set the draft order, and if someone trades a third round draft pick and someone, for someone else, then the commish can go in and change the third round draft pick the following season. You will have to keep up with it to change it, but that's it. The problem is that now one team has one more draft pick than is allowed. Our league's solution to that, is that it is assumed that the other team is trading their last draft pick back in the deal. That way both teams have the same number of draft picks.

Did that make sense? It sounds confusing, but it is pretty easy on Yahoo actually....
